A lot has been written about how Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a major shift from the previous films in the series. But long before the fans felt that whiplash, someone else did – the crew. We sat down with costume designer Michael Kaplan and he explained how going from J.J. Abrams and Star Wars: The Force Awakens to Rian Johnson and The Last Jedi shook things up in a huge way…and it’s all summed up in the fate of Kylo Ren’s mask.

Early in Star Wars: The Last Jedi , an enraged Kylo Ren (humiliated by Supreme Leader Snoke following the destruction of Starkiller Base and his defeat at the hands of Rey) smashes his helmet into pieces. It’s a big moment, the first major shift for a villain who then spends the next 150 minutes transforming into one of the most fascinating movie villains in a long time. It’s clear what Johnson intended: Kylo Ren loses his mask and is now truly seen by the world. The man who was Ben Solo is laid bare for all to see.

But for Michael Kaplan, saying goodbye to the mask he had agonized over with J.J. Abrams was a tough moment. Our own Ben Pearson sat down with Kaplan and got the whole story.

Fate of the Galaxy is a first-person space combat game about the incredible starfighter battles of the Star Wars Original Trilogy. We want to put you directly in the cockpit of an X-Wing or TIE Fighter and let you live the battles yourself. Victory or defeat is up to you and your friends, in the most fast paced, exciting, and authentic Star Wars game ever. Choose to follow the career of a pilot for the Rebel Alliance, an Imperial Officer, or a freelancing mercenary during the height of the galactic civil war in three connected campaigns. Best of all, it's fan-made, not-for-profit, and totally free!

Bobbtmann has made some great progress on the Nebulon-B, which now has completed textures and will soon be ready to be brought into the game. This was one of the last ships from the original Star Wars trilogy that we didn't have, and fills an important role in the Rebel fleet.

THE GALACTIC WAR RAGES ON. WHERE DOES YOUR ALLEGIANCE LIE? WILL YOU SIDE WITH THE REBELLION OR THE EMPIRE? JOIN THE FIGHT, BUILD YOUR BASE, RECRUIT AND TRAIN YOUR ARMY, STRATEGICALLY PLAN YOUR DEFENSES, AND LEAD YOUR TROOPS TO VICTORY ON WAR-TORN WORLDS THROUGHOUT THE GALAXY!

BATTLE WITH OR AGAINST ICONIC CHARACTERS LIKE DARTH VADER, LUKE SKYWALKER, HAN SOLO AND PRINCESS LEIA, AND UTILIZE OR DESTROY UNITS LIKE AT-ATS, SPEEDER BIKES, WOOKIEE WARRIORS, AND STORMTROOPERS. JOIN MILLIONS AROUND THE GLOBE TO PLAY IN THIS EPIC COMBAT STRATEGY GAME. COMMANDER, THE FATE OF THE GALAXY IS IN YOUR HANDS!

All the debate can finally be laid to rest. We’re about to finally know what happened to Jar Jar Binks after Revenge of the Sith , and what he’s been doing since Return of the Jedi .

The answers will be revealed in Star Wars Aftermath: Empire’s End , the third part of Chuck Wendig’s canon trilogy or novels about what happened in the Star Wars galaxy after Return of the Jedi , due out next week. The previous two books have revealed a lot of things about what major characters were up to prior to The Force Awakens , but nothing prepared us for this.

If you haven’t read the books (they’re good), in addition to the main story, Wendig does “Interlude” chapters to show what’s happening in other corners of the galaxy after the fall of Darth Vader and the Empire. On page 92 of Empire’s End there’s an interlude called “Theed, Naboo” referring to the capital of the lush planet where Jar Jar had his first adventures with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Qui-Gon Jinn.

Lightsabers are one of the most important staples in the Star Wars galaxy, being the chosen weapon of skilled Jedi and Sith warriors who have appeared in every installment in the franchise.

Few weapons have had an impact in the series like Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber, which made its first canonical appearance in Episode II: Attack of the Clones . And though it was used by both Luke and Rey in subsequent films, the item might have met its end.

Anthony Breznican of Entertainment Weekly continues his always excellent preview of Star Wars: The Last Jedi today by focusing on arguably the most famous space twins in Force history: Luke and Leia.

Whether they actually get that reunion in  The Last Jedi  isn’t a given, though. “It’s nice seeing them on the cover though. Even if all we have is that,” Johnson says.

If these star-crossed twins find each other again, it’ll be bittersweet. If they don’t, it will be tragic. But heartbreak is a part of life, even in fantasy.
